2014 was a very busy year for us, we started the year by supporting our teenagers with secondary school and practical training courses, followed by a beadwork workshop in February, setting seedbeds to continue with kitchen gardening and ensuring all our families were getting the support they needed.

The main workshops in 2014 were beadwork in February, a two day sharing workshop for our guardians, an eight day residential counselling workshop for our teenage girls, and a two day music workshop all during the school holidays in August.

Wamumbi Orphan Care group meetings in 2014

We had a number of group meetings in 2014 to work out our strategy for the year and to discuss any issues. Besides regular project management committee meetings, we had a big get together at Christmas with all the children and their guardians.

February 2016

Despite facing some challenges at the start of this year we are continuing to support our teenagers through secondary school and those doing vocational courses with money we have managed to fundraise from family and friends. We're in the process of making grant applications to ensure we can continue our work into the future. Sad news this month is that one of our grandmothers has passed away leaving behind the two siblings she was caring for, we will do our best to support them as they go through this difficult time. 

September 2015

We are currently supporting 15 teenagers through the third term of secondary school, with two more being sponsored by Equity Bank. In August we ran two sexual health workshops, one for our guardians and members of the wider community, and the other for all our teenagers 11yrs+. This was in collaboration with the ABCs of Sex Education who did a fantastic job, bringing a great sense of humour into an otherwise serious topic. We have also run four more successful workshops this year in April, May and August. Theatre, art, music and counselling through this medium is having a transformative effect on all our children. They are noticeably less depressed, more confident, and building strong relationships with their peers and guardians.

April 2015

This month we're holding two workshops during the Easter holidays for our youngsters - one is a 10 day residential theatre and art therapy workshop and the other is a four day music workshop. We're excited to be able to give the children this opportunity to learn and grow in such creative spaces!
